PowerShellCommunity.org Joins Forces with Microsoft Scripting Guys to Host 2009 Summer Scripting Games


LOS ANGELES – At Microsoft TechEd 2009, PowerShellCommunity.org, an online community where script writers connect and share knowledge, today announced a key alliance with the Microsoft Script Center (aka Scripting Guys) and PoshCode.org to host the 2009 Scripting Games, June 15–26, 2009.

“We started the Games to challenge scripters everywhere, invite them in to become part of a fun community, and to learn in a cost-effective way,” said John Merrill, IT content evangelist and publishing manager in the Windows Server Division User Assistance group. “We are pleased to work together with PowerShellCommunity.org in helping deliver a premium scripting experience for the two weeks in June when we host the Games.”

The Scripting Games are a chance for IT professionals to practice and test their scripting skills during 10 events using either Microsoft Windows PowerShell or Microsoft VBScript. The Games begin as a live event with contestants submitting entries that are judged and scored by the community.

“We are looking forward to the Scripting Games and being part of the community in helping up to 1,000 or more script writers in showcasing their craft,” said Hal Rottenberg, director of PowerShellCommunity.org. “Sponsors of PowerShellCommunity.org like Idera, Quest Software, Inc., Compellent and SAPIEN Technologies, Inc. help us provide this venue for Windows PowerShell users to collaborate and communicate.”
